Xavier Students Celebrate the Year of the Tiger

March 31, 2010

In celebration of the Year of the Tiger, members of the Chinese Club at Xavier College Preparatory School in Phoenix, Arizona, held a fundraiser to benefit China Care Foundation. The students sold traditional Chinese New Year red envelopes filled with personalized messages for friends and teachers. For an extra donation, Chinese Club members wrote the recipient’s name in Mandarin. On the same day they delivered the special New Year messages, club members held a bake sale where they offered fortune cookies and almond cookies.

The total amount raised from both the message sales and the bake sale will pay for the medical treatment of a child staying at The China Care Home in Beijing. This will be the fourth China Care child to receive critical surgery and nurturing care thanks to the efforts of Xavier’s Chinese Club.
